Welcome to our guests. We are glad you have joined us in worshipping our Lord and Savior. We trust you will draw strength, peace, and hope as together we hear God's Word spoken here today. So that we may serve you better, we ask that you fill out an attendance card located on the back of the pew, including your address and noting that you are a visitor.

MONDAY MORNING PRAYERS  Vicar Lackey will be out of the office tomorrow, so there will not be morning prayers.  They will resume next week.

NEW WORSHIP SCHEDULE  Beginning in October, we will return to offering a Saturday evening service and one Sunday morning service.  The Saturday service will be at 5pm, and Sunday will be at 9am.  Bible study and Sunday school will follow.

VOLUNTEERS NEEDED We are in need of a couple of volunteers on Sunday mornings to help with cleaning the kitchen after bible study.  If you can stay and help, please do!

SECURE SHRED Due to the high volume of paper that has so far been collected, we have 3 new bins!  They will be here until Tuesday, September 21st.

Church Directories  New directories are printing weekly.  Please return your old ones to the church office.  The data will go into secure shred bins, and the bindings can be reused.     Thank you.

LWML The LWML monthly meeting will be held on Thursday, September 23rd at 6:30 p.m. in the Janssen Rooms. After the business meeting we will be putting together Lutheran Crosses. All ladies are welcome to attend. Please join us for fellowship!
